The official website of the TV anime adaptation of Naoki Shigeno's 4-koma manga Nobunaga no Shinobi has announced that a third season of the anime has been greenlit. Under the title, Nobunaga no Shinobi: Anegawa Ishiyama-hen, the anime is slated to premiere in April 2018. The cast and staff members from the previous seasons will reprise their roles in the upcoming anime.

The historical comedy manga about a young girl named Chidori serving Oda Nobunaga began its serialization in Hakusensha's Young Animal magazine in June 2008 and has compiled 12 volumes in print. The 13th limited edition volume of the manga will bundle the first 13 episodes of the anime's second season and is set to be released on March 29.

Nobunaga no Shinobi has been adapted into a 3-minute TV anime by TMS Entertainment. An episode zero special was streamed in March 2016, preceding the first season that ran from October 2016 to March 2017. It was immediately followed by a sequel titled Nobunaga no Shinobi: Ise Kanegasaki-hen that aired between April and September last year.

The first season was good, the second one not so good - less humor and it lost me a few times on who is who and what is happening where (but I guess it's not so for Japanese viewers cause they learn all that history stuff at school and everybody knows it). Will watch the third season, though it's probably will be like the second one.

Wonder if it'll be 26 episodes again like the previous two seasons.

Yay! I actually like this show if I can be honest, so more of it would be pretty neat.

Although I need to look into the second season so.

Yes! Looking forward for it!

I'll watch it, but I think they've let the history stuff take over the humor as it went on. Seems even more unavoidable considering the upcoming events.

Yes! ^^ I've been missing this series since the second season ended. I hoped we'll get another season but didn't think it will be so soon :D Guess I have another sequel to look forward to this year ^^
